Cape Town - Steve Komphela has issued a warning to teams that scoring against Kaizer Chiefs first can be detrimental.

According to KickOff, the Amakhosi coach believes his side have the ability to hurt teams if they score first when facing the Soweto giants.

“I think, look at it from the positive point of view - maybe a message to those who hurt us, you do so at your own peril,” Komphela said.

“I think it is up to them, the response in the second half. They are simply telling you there are signs and indicators of a champion.

"If you hurt us we have the power, so we happy that they have a way of responding. They have been great comebacks.”

Chiefs hammered SuperSport United 4-1 after being a goal down and have also overturned a two-goal deficit against Maritzburg United in a MTN8 Cup clash, winning the Team of Choice 5-3.

This weekend Chiefs will face PSL’s dark horse, Ajax Cape Town, in the MTN8 final at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday, September 19.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
